That was the seventh ICDS held in Hong Kong since its inception in 2002. It has always been a landmark event that offered medical experts with an invaluable opportunity to show the recent advancements in the treatment of colorectal disease through a series of dialectic lectures, live demonstrations, panel discussion, video session and free papers discussion. With prominent clinical leaders and international faculties from the United States, Europe, Asia-Pacific regions, and local institutions, that was an attractive and stimulating programme.
The symposium was held at the HKEC Training Centre for Healthcare Management and Clinical Technology which was located in Pamela Youde Nethersole Eastern Hospital. The advanced audiovisual technology and video-conferencing facilities therein provided the medical professional with an inspiring learning environment to acquire and share experience and best practices.
